FLORENCE, S.C. – Francis Marion University senior forward Katie Roberts has been named to the National Soccer Coaches Association of America (NSCAA) All-Southeast Region Team for the fourth consecutive year.
Roberts, a native of Frederick, Md., was selected to the 11-member second team.
This past season, she led FMU with 12 goals, seven assists, and 31 points en route to nearly rewriting the entire Patriot recordbook. She missed only one match during her career and ended her playing days as the school’s career leader in shots (220), goals (47), assists (35), and points (129). She also holds the Peach Belt Conference career marks for assists and points and shares the career record for goals.
During the 2003 regular season, she earned PBC “Player of the Week” honors after tallying four goals and three assists during FMU’s opening four matches.
She led the Patriots to an 11-7-1 record and an appearance in the Peach Belt Tournament semifinals, where FMU was beaten by the eventual NCAA Division II national champion Kennesaw State University. Over her four years at FMU, she helped Francis Marion to a 55-21-3 mark, one PBC Tournament title, and one NCAA Division II national tournament invitation.
Last month, she was named to the PBC All-Conference Team for a record-setting fourth time.
In 2002, Roberts became one of only a handful of Patriot athletes to earn All-America honors for accomplishments on the playing field and in the classroom in the same year.
